  2. Windows 8 failure configuring updates and reverting

    I agree 8 is awful! It's not for me though... I replaced a broken screen in a Win 8 laptop that was given to me and I am going to give it for free to someone that can't afford one so they can do homework at home. Yes I took it from 8 to 8.1 back on 10/09/2014. This is what I posted there...

    "Great post! I found a similar one. I would like to point out that you may want to edit your OP...

    1. Step 1 should read to disable AUTOMATIC updates, not disable manual updates.

    2. KB2871398 should really read KB2871389

    I would like to say that KB2917499 may also be needed as it was in my case. I also had to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter after installing those 2 updates. After these steps I was able to begin my 8.1 download from the Microsoft store. I don't know if it made a difference or not, but I also went into the Bios and disabled "Secure Boot."


    It was a helpful post. Thanks!

  3. Cancel a pending upgrade to Windows 11

    I had this issue as well. After reverting back to Windows 10, the following seems to have resolved it for me, and cancelled the pending Windows 11 upgrade.

    1. Add the following registry key using CMD/PowerShell as Administrator
      1. REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate /v ProductVersion /t REG_SZ /d "Windows 10"
      2. This key instructs Windows to only receive Feature Updates for the Windows 10 product
    2. Click 'Pause updates' in Settings > Windows Update
    3. Restart the Windows Update service (wuauserv)
    4. Click to resume updates in Settings > Windows Update
    5. Check for updates to verify that it does not attempt the upgrade again
    Hope this helps and resolves your issue!

    How to remove pending Windows 10 update after upgraded to Windows 11?

    I have upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11, not realizing that a few Windows 10 updates are in progress. Now that I am on Windows 11, three Windows 10 updates are still showing as "Updates available to download" and do not go away. The only option is to click on the "Download & install" but it fails and the WIndows 10 updates stay on the list. They are preventing the "Check for updates" button from showing and therefore preventing all Windows 11 updates from showing up.

    I have run the Windows 11 Troubleshoot under System > Troubleshoot > Other Troubleshooters for Windows Update but it does not fix the problem.

    How can I remove the three pending Windows 10 updates from Windows 11? The three pending Windows 10 updates are:

    Feature update to Windows 10, version 21H2

    2022-05 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64 (KB5013624)

    2022-02 Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64 (KB5010472)
